Oh, this week. THIS WEEK, FRIENDS. (She said, with every intention of stopping the paragraph there for emphasis but continuing with a parenthetical because somewhere Crashed, Eridani, and Ruthless would be glaring otherwise, even though the front page is entirely stubs now.)
It’s like Show knows that I’m spinning out of full-time work and back into consulting, which is interesting but a little uncertainty-creating (hey, if anyone needs a producer!), and so it decided to condense a bunch of Anti-Antipodal Themes into one episode and get it over with.
Really, I appreciate the consideration. It’s that kind of thoughtful audience incorporation that elevates a project.
So . . . Week 5, still no Fitz.
Despite UU’s dreams of a 70's-era Fitz, I personally don’t think we’ll see him this week.
With apologies to those of differing opinion (which is totally fair and cool)—I’m not a huge fan of 70's anything. It’s a decade that my synesthesia long ago assigned an association with orange and brown corduroy, all elements that are are on the Axis of Irritating (granted, through no fault of their own, but I legit treat every encounter with Orange suspiciously).
Also appearing on said Axis: Fish, and anything having to do with Thoreau (entirely through fault of their own, because the way a fish moves squicks me out and am entirely convinced Thoreau Went To The Woods because half the townspeople said it was that or pelting him with milky trout).
It will perhaps be interesting to be back in the Lighthouse (she never thought she’d say), and maybe we’ll meet the Blowed!Up Chronicom? The one I’m pretty sure was in Dodgeball?
And it will be fun to see Victor become part of the team. I will *very much* enjoy that. I wonder if we’ll see him find out Steve’s alive onscreen?
Below: Explain to me why Orange Is Not Evil, Fish are Super Cool, and Thoreau (and Philosophy) deserve less-than-shade. Or just crack open some Zima and pass it around to the crew.
But mostly, I want Fitz, dammit!
